You know, as a Chicagoan and a White Sox fan, I’ve always found it rather funny that some Cubs fans think their team is cursed instead of admitting they just haven’t been that good for 100 years. This morning I’m wondering if those Cubs fans may be on to something. It would seem that the Chicago Bears are cursed when it comes to their quarterbacks. Just when the team and the city thought they’d found their man — he came from the cornfields of Iowa, with a bottle of Jack Daniels in one hand, a football in the other, and a fondness for neckbeards — it was all taken away on a Sunday afternoon.
Kyle Orton suffered a high ankle sprain during the first half of the Bears eventual victory over the Detroit Lions, and that can only mean one thing. He’s back. Yes, the Sex Cannon himself, Rex Grossman, will once again be lining up under center to throw back-breaking interceptions and fumble a snap near you.
